A. Hot Process - make your own vegetable oil based soap from scratch. This method uses external heat to complete the saponification process. No need for long curing time.
B. Cold Process - same as hot process, you can make your own vegetable oil based soap from scratch. This method does not use external heat, therefore, curing for 4 to 6 weeks is needed.
Note that these methods will involve use of Lye or Sodium Hydroxide, a base necessary to turn fatty acids (vegetable oils) into soap.
